BELIEVER - What song is "DOING IT" for you today?! (11.09.2018)

in steemitbloggers •  2 months ago

First things first
I'ma say all the words inside my head
I'm fired up and tired of the way that things have been, oh ooh
The way that things have been, oh ooh
Second thing second
Don't you tell me what you think that I can be
I'm the one at the sail, I'm the master of my sea, oh ooh
The master of my sea, oh ooh
I was broken from a young age
Taking my sulking to the masses
Write down my poems for the few
That looked at me, took to me, shook to me, feeling me
Singing from heartache from the pain
Taking my message from the veins
Speaking my lesson from the brain

To say that my little boy (@judethedude) is passionate about this song, would be the understatement of the year! He plays it again and again and he knows the lyrics from beginning to end! So needless to say, whether it is my choice or not, this song is on repeat on our sound system on a relatively regular basis. To be honest, I have always enjoyed the track, but because it plays so much here and commercially - I stopped paying attention to the lyrics. It was only when the other night, Jude requested that we sing it together - well DAMN!

I am a BIG lyrics girl, but would be a liar if I did not admit that certain tracks escape my attention and this was one of them - but having to sing it with my little man, brought the details to the foreground and suddenly I found myself completely blown away with inspiration - not only because of the song itself - but because of my 8 year olds ability to appreciate lyrics on that level. He may not understand every little thing, but the songs energy speaks for itself and the mere fact that he has the maturity to appreciate something like that over some of the monumental CRAP that the kids DO listen to nowadays was pretty darn impressive!




Life without music is a complete non-negotiable as far as I am concerned. There is honestly NEVER a moment in my world where I do not have music playing from somewhere… whether it’s in the lounge while I am working, the kitchen while I am cooking, the bathroom while I am showering, or in the car while I am driving… there is ALWAYS music… Music to me, is soul food!

It does not matter whether you have loved it for ten minutes or ten years.... Let's HEAR it!!! What is YOUR Track of the Day?

for me

I love this song. It was on a repeat before the radio stations picked up on it then it got a bit too much haha. My other go to when I need a bit of a pick me is this one 😊

I never tire of this song.

It took me while to place this song. When I saw the first line, "first things first" the only song I could think of was J Cole's, "No role modelz" which happens to be one of my favorite J Cole songs. Once I saw that it was Imagine Dragons I still couldn't place the song. Then I listened to it, and of course I've heard it many times. It brought back a few memories of my kids listening to that song. Somewhere deep in my list of posts to write I've got one I've been working on about how hearing a song jogs your memory and can transport you to another time in your life. Perhaps a good steemitbloggers contest would be listing 5 or 10 songs and a brief description of the event they remind you of (just keep it G rated!)
